Paramount Hunt For Red October (Blu-ray)Based on Tom Clancy's bestseller, directed by John McTiernan ("DieHard") and starring Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin, "The Hunt For Red October" seethes with high-tech excitement and sweats with the tension of men who hold Doomsday in their hands. A new technologically-superior Soviet nuclear sub, the Red October, is heading for the U.S. coast under the command ofCaptain Marko Ramius (Connery). The American government thinks Ramius is planning to attack. A loneCIA analyst (Baldwin) has a different idea: he thinks Ramius is planning to defect, but he has onlya few hours to find him and prove it - because the entire Russian naval and air commands are tryingto find him, too. The hunt is on.
Editor's Note
In the tradition of DIE HARD and PREDATOR, director John McTiernan presents audiences with yet another techno thriller: THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER. Sean Connery plays Captain Marko Ramius, a dissatisfied Russian commander who navigates his submarine towards America in an attempt to defect. Soviet intelligence claims that Ramius is a warmonger and that he plans to launch nuclear missiles at the United States. Jack Ryan (Alec Baldwin), an iconoclastic CIA agent, believes otherwise: American spies have determined that the submarine is powered by a stealth engine. In order to save the "caterpillar drive" and avoid a nuclear incident, Agent Ryan must board the Red October and assist Captain Ramius in its navigation to U.S. waters. Both murky and captivating, the underwater visual and sound effects are reminiscent of DAS BOOT. Once again director McTiernan produces a winning film with a jagged plot, a well acted script, and plenty of explosions.
